To all my FB friends who knew Stan Rydarowicz. Beginning Sunday evening I will start listing some of Stan's material on EBay. I will try to do approximately 10 or more per week as my time permits. This is a labor of love for a good friend who is no longer with us. I am doing this with the permission of Diane Rydarowicz who is Stan's executor.
My EBay user ID is Marksd45.
I will also use the term
"Rydarowicz train collection" in the description fields.
Please feel free to share this on the various RR model and Historical Society pages.
I have a 100% rating and I generally start the auctions on Sunday evenings.
Stan has some exquisite models and this will be a fair way to ensure anyone has and equal shot at this material.
There will also be some items that are not as unique sold at the Youngstown Model RR Flea Market at McMenamys Banquet Hall in Niles OH on April 10th

Re: USRA SS boxcar underframe question

Robert kirkham
 

Actually, not Tichy. I know they offered a 7/8 end, but I always felt it wasn't right for the CPR cars. The biggest practical issue was the length of the ribs, which I felt did not terminate the right distance from the corners - they look too short. https://www.tichytraingroup.com/Shop/tabid/91/c/ends/p/3058/Default.aspx That's probably not a significant consideration for a fleet car for most folks, but as a CPR modeler it was something I wanted to address. In addition they come with the cast on end ladder stiles.

I toyed with cutting Accurail ends off their SS 7/8 end cars, as they look right for the CPR fleet. Trouble is they are a margin too slim for the Tichy cars. Instead of sawing the Tichy cars in half to narrow that smidgen, I am 3d printing my own ends. <https://www.shapeways.com/product/N5U6238UF/ho-7-8-murphy-end-for-usra-ss-boxcar?li=shop-results&;optionId=1883358> Costly for more than a couple of cars, so I will add Archer rivets etc and then find a way to have them cast.

Tichy. He offered the CPR car as kit #4034 and the 7/8 ends separately as part #3058.

Re: CB&Q 1952 boxcar paint and decals

Jerry Hamsmith
 

Accurate CB&Q XM-32 decals in HO scale have been and are available from me.  The decals are appropriate for any of the cars from this class built between 1940 and 1953.  The decals are in the appropriate railroad roman white lettering and include the Everywhere West and Way of the Zephyrs script slogans as well as the boxed Burlington Route herald used on these boxcar red cars before 1958.  I have other CB&Q decals available also.  Anyone interested should contact me, off list, at hammersr@...

You've given me a model for sharing my Southern Railway 1934 train info! Right now it is still PDF scans and a growing Excel spreadsheet.

I can easily convert to html tables.

Re: Red Caboose ARA 1923 boxcar

carl roberts
 

Spoke to them last week about this very car( ex RED CABOOSE #7003, I need 6 myself). They called me back two days latter and said they did not have enough parts sprues to complete a kit at this time, however if I see them offering a run of RTR 1923 ARA cars to call them and they could add undec kits to the run. No indication when that might be.

Re: USRA SS boxcar underframe question

riverman_vt@...
 

Hello Rod,

     I have wondered about a CPR conversion of the Tichy USRA single sheathed
boxcar as well. Now I am wondering whose 7/8 Murphy ends you might be using.
Have you found any other major modifications other than the mentioned stringers?

Thank you, Don Valentine
 


Centralia UP ccabooses.

asychis@...
 

I hope this is appropriate to post.  Please reply off list.  I am looking for one or two of these cabooses in the red oxide scheme (already assembled or still in kit form). Got a surprise project for a good friend.
 
Thanks,

Much great information there Terry.  Thank you!

A quick perusal shows more than a few interesting things.
